Car people should be very, very excited over the Strand Craft GT 500 Wagon. The yacht-building company (Strand Craft) has announced plans to create a one-off wagon using the Shelby GT 500. The wagon will come equipped with the GT 500's 5.8-liter supercharged V8 engine, but Strand Craft is planning on upping the horsepower from 662 to 850. Those numbers are good for a 0-60 time of 3.3 seconds.

Station wagons aren't nearly as big in the U.S. as they used to be, and supercharged station wagons are practically nonexistent. While the Strand Craft GT 500 Wagon is just a one-off, a good reception of it could lead automakers to at least reconsider selling super-powered wagons in the U.S. again.
